the conservatives pretty well controlled the last Lambeth (1998) because of their numbers

It didn't do any good, did it?

Resolution 1.10 set a standard,a plumb line, by which to measure adherence to Anglicanism in regard to sexuality. Of course, the US and Canada thumbed their collective noses at it, but it passed by a very large majority and stands as the standard to be used among those who observe the “honor system.”

1.10 (excerpts)
- in view of the teaching of Scripture, upholds faithfulness in marriage between a man and a woman in lifelong union, and believes that abstinence is right for those who are not called to marriage;

- while rejecting homosexual practice as incompatible with Scripture, calls on all our people to minister pastorally and sensitively to all irrespective of sexual orientation and to condemn irrational fear of homosexuals, violence within marriage and any trivialization and commercialization of sex;

- cannot advise the legitimizing or blessing of same sex unions nor ordaining those involved in same gender unions;
